Summer start banner

For Canadian Academy Pre-K - Grade 6 students
June 15 - 16

The purpose of the Summer Start program is to help students finish the school week and transition smoothly to the summer mode of learning. Summer Start is primarily oriented to support CA community, but we welcome any student to have a good start of the summer with us.
Summer Start is two-day program. The program staff consists of experienced CA faculty members and experienced assistants. We have many volunteers from the CA students body helping the program as well. Thanks to their service, we have exceptional staff/student ratio.
